Can ultrasonic cavitation be used to remove buffalo hump fat?

Jun 23, 2013

Can ultrasonic cavitation be used to remove buffalo hump fat? I read in some gay periodicals that this new non-invasive lipo procedure, can be used for some stubborn local area fat removal. Is it safe and effective?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

A lot of testimonials on the internet. However, I am not aware of any peer-reviewed published clinical trials that assess safety or efficacy of the technology for lipodystrophy-associated problems in HIV patients.
